The Young Judges Competition presented by Arrow Energy gives aspiring judges the opportunity to showcase their budding talents.
The competition features seven categories; Stud Beef, Led Steer, Dairy Cattle, Stud Sheep, Dairy Goats, Horses and Poultry.
Entry is FREE and open to people aged 25 years and under, with the competition featuring a Junior Class for under 15 year-olds and a Senior Class for 15 to 25 year-olds.
Despite the cancellation of the 2020 Ekka, the Young Judges Competition was able to run in a modified format as part of Ekka 2020 Online. The young judges were required to view the images and videos below, ranking the animals from 1-4 based on specific criteria and provide a three-minute video outlining their reasoning for the order.
